as both paranoid unplug and india centric. no we have a region where we will live long after the americans security concern du jour has passed. we know that from fact. we know it from the cold war. we were the country that provided the intelligence base from which france took off for its mission over the soviet union and got shot down. only to have the soviet union threaten us with retaliation because we have a base in pakistan. without there being any american commitment actually to be there to protect us against that retaliation if that occurred. those are pieces of history. so many times those of you have had me. >> know this is my little clicÉe but i'm going to repeat it anyway because sometimes clichÉs are good and that is americans do a lot of things very well. america is a great nation which has contributed immensely to human progress, the idea of liberty and the idea freedom and the idea of democracy modern capitalism and globalization and everything and then of course more than any other nation in at least a 200 years. there is one thing americans don't do. two things americans
property bubble. they take in this foreign investment every month when india takes in every year and still it only grows two percentage points faster than india. if you think about the quality of chinese growth it's not as impressive as it appears. massive investment. a huge number of airports, high speed rail. if you look at what you're getting out have -- of it in terms of return on investment, not as impressive. china has a huge problem. the u.n. came out with a report that pointed out that china is going to have a demographic clams over the next years. it is going to lose 400 million. there is no point in human history in which you've had a dominant power in the world that is also declining demographically. simply doesn't happen. if you want to see what a country in decline looks like look at japan and ask yourself how powerful is it? china's g.d.p. gets inflated because the cost of a haircut in beijing is less than one in toronto. but g.d.p. depends on foreign aid and oil and international investments and aircraft carriers and for all of that you need real hard currency and that adjus
serious to them and to us. as you know, they persist in the idea that the india poses an exsister-in-law threat to their existence while terrorists that operate in the fattah are less threat to them and therefore they allocate their resources accordingly and they embrace different engagement activities with us differently. we have been over the course of time working to convince them that the terrorist threat, the extremist threat and to their west is as great a threat and probably a greater threat to them than any threat that india might pose. but it's on that basis, it's on that select chal disagreement about what is most threatening to them that these programs are viewed. so we would tend to view programs to improve counterinsurgency capability and their general purpose forces, policing and security role for their frontier core. we would tend to view those as more important than the higher end processes and programs. it's just one of those things we have to continue to work through. >> thank you. there's been a great deal of discussion about standards of interrogation and detai

in vietnam, and a lot of the ways of the fight now, the india- pakistan war which defines what is going on in the subcontinent now. even at the end of his career and of his life, 1994, he was still in the game. he was still thinking strategically, and to him, the cold war, the effects of the cold war still were not over. he was concerned about russia, and his thesis was communism is dead in warsaw, but democracy has not yet won, and for that reason he was traveling back and forth to russia, worried about whether gorbachev or yeltsin was speaking on that topic. he got a call from president clinton, they had a conservation -- conversation about clinton's russia policy, and you could see how his policy changed along with the advice that was given by richard nixon. as i see it, that is the essence of the man. i would like to conclude by going back to senator dole's look cheap. he talks about the last sign he saw president nixon, at a luncheon held in the capital honoring the 25th anniversary of his first inaugural. president nixon stood and delivered a speech, capturing the global seen as o
for business and goes around the world as i have done to china and india and africa, and because there are suggestions you should cancel a trip like that, i think it is talking britain and down, and i think you should be better than that. in 2003, a committee warned about the media. the investigation the prime minister has announced, will we go that far back and related to understand what the committee region really understand what the committee ignored. >> one thing they are looking at is the relationship between the media and politics. >> if they had known newt information, and would he have gone ahead with the appointment? >> i explain this last week. if i have been told the proper information andy coulson knew about hacking, i would have fired him. >> could i congratulate the prime minister on taking the lead when new evidence came out to establishing an independence inquiry. having gotten that independence, can he say he will affirm with the economic tsunami democrats one thing we can do is lead the inquiry to answer difficult questions, and we focus on issues around jobs. >
and they are going to do it at a lower cost. we have to compete with india, china, japan and indonesia and viet na -- vietnam. if we don't, other businesses will compete abroad. a lot of those jobs that those positions were held by african americans. we need to retool the american work force and let me tell you why there are numbers that are disproportionate with african americans. i don't want people doing what they did in the last 400 years. they say because they don't want to work and we have heard that unfortunately over the years. the only reason we know what the numbers are are because those are the individuals who are out seeking work and that's how we know that the unemployment numbers are what theyr but keep in mind, nobody probably thinks about this, every time you read about a state laying off workers , a municipality laying off firefighters or police officers or if you find any government agency laying off, it means that the number of african americans who are unemployed will rise and the reason for that is african americans disproportionately seek work in the government. we have done
business. our capital can go anywhere in the world, india, china, vietnam, canada, mexico. it can go anywhere. and when you start raising taxes on our job creators and you scratch your head and wonder why they are leaving, it is pretty obvious. we see it in a smammer level in our states where we see more regulation and more taxes in our states like california. all of a sudden, businesses pack up and go to another state that has better rules and regulations and taxes. that happens on a broader scale right here in america. you raise the cost of business, you kill jobs in america. in the end, does it hurt these businesses? no. the people that are hurt are our constituents, our families, our people in our districts that are yes or noing for opportunities, yes or no -- yearning for a job. >> war will it take -- mr. griffin: what will it take tore folks to wobbeder why businesses are leaving the country. they want to point the finger to someone else, some third party, some external cause. maybe we should think about the fact that the policies adopted by the federal government have an impac
of the constitution that will result to the states india, she should be able to make that claim, and so we told the supreme court take this case even though we lost, so they took the case and in the appointed a private lawyer to argue with the government would have argued in terms of her not having a legal standing, the right to bring the case and then after hearing the oral arguments they wrote an opinion that said that that private lawyer wasn't right for their service, vice versa, but at the end of the day after hearing the argument. >> think about the prosecutor in the perry mason series that he confessed error. there would be no novels, no nothing. [laughter] >> sometimes the courts and the car in the tory area and follow the latter in the supreme court issued but not the spirit, and one of my favorites was in the plaintiffs' court in texas they have some good places to make a living and the court had said the highlight line for punitive damage is $9 of the punitive for every 1 dollar a factual or compensatory damages. so a person who never earned more than maybe a thousand dollars a year

military that is not simply exclusively engaged or is exclusively focused on a conventional war with india, but is able to launch counterinsurgency operations particularly in the federally administered tribal areas. i think this funding is critical so long as we have troops in the field in afghanistan, that we seek to maintain or certainly increase the capability of the pakistani military and counterinsurgency operations. with that, mr. chairman, i rise in opposition to this amendment and would urge my colleagues to vote against it. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the question is on the amendment offered by the gentleman from texas. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, the noes have it. the amendment is not -- the gentleman is recognized. mr. poe: i request the yeas and nays. the chair: a recorded vote has been requested. pursuant to clause 6 of rule 18, further proceedings on the amendment offered by the gentleman from texas will be postponed. does the gentleman from texas wish to offer his next amendment? mr. poe: i have no
